Got a question about the tablature used in a song? Look no further. Ask your questions in the Cyberfret.com guitar forums. There is a reading forum where you can ask questions about this reference, or about a particular problem you are having with reading the tab used in a song.

Here is what to do.

3. If you have questions about a particular song, be sure to copy and paste the part of the song that you have a question on. Or give a link to where the tab can be found.
